I love my dog. I want to give a talk in church about Christ-like attributes, and I would be able to talk for 15 to 20 minutes about Murray. How he loves unconditionally, how he always forgives me, how he would do ANYTHING for me, how he always is willing to go the extra mile.

Today, he proved it once again. I took him to, I kid you not, a "Laundro-Mutt." It's a set-up with steps up to a bath-tub, a sprayer, shampoo, lotion, towels, TWO blow-dryers, hooks all over the place to clip the animal to - it was amazing. Especially since it cost only $15 for unlimited time.

When I got home late Tuesday (gosh, Tuesday? Seems like a couple of years ago), Murray was scratching his fur out in big clumps, and his skin was all red and inflamed looking. Turning immediately to an expert source, I googled "dog skin red itch," and the first logical suggestion (after dog porn, using dogs as drug mules, and how a wet dog smells) was to give the dog a bath; if that doesn't help, then take him to the vet.

So... for the low price of $15, I became soaked, covered with dog hair, shampoo, conditioner, and my hair blown-dried straight up.

And Murray - he forgave me. Isn't he great?
